Aurora, Ohio-based medical equipment disposition company reLink Medical announces that it has acquired the assets of Wilmington, N.C.-based O’Brien Wholesale Inc. (OWI). Shane O’Brien, OWI’s founder and CEO, will be joining the reLink Medical executive team as vice president of products.

“As we continue to explore sales channels to improve the return to our reLink360 customers, we recognized the leadership role that OWI was playing in the medical equipment liquidation and web sales channel. O’Brien’s processes and expertise were a natural addition to our expanding model,” says Jeff Dalton, president and COO. “We look forward to integrating OWI’s expertise and methodology to improve our broad offering of disposition channels.”

“I’m extremely excited to be joining the reLink team,” says O’Brien. “reLink’s vision for providing unparalleled value to hospitals through a full-service disposition process is similar to OWIs, but on a much larger scale. By joining the reLink team, I can see that happening even more efficiently.”

OWI is the first of many channels that reLink Medical looks to acquire as the company continues to seek additional processes that enhance their customers’ return on liquidated assets and continue to provide the best possible disposition options.
